Sun visors are built to flop to the side to screen sunlight coming in through the side windows, but those in our 2014 Acura MDX come up short.

    The visors on my 2010 Honda Odyssey LX slide back and forth and are just perfect. Why wouldn't the same manufacturer do this feature on a $42,000+ vehicle?

    this just seems wrong. im 99% sure my wife's Acura RDX's visors has telescoping arms.

    I have always assumed the people that design this part of the interior are all very small men or women that sit bolt upright, because there is no other rational argument for a visor that is several inches shorter than the length of the door and doesn't include an extention feature of some sort.

    Maybe they should change Japan's nickname from "the land of the rising sun" to "the land of perpetual noon".

    Odd, our 2003 and 2006 MDX had and have the sliding flap for additional sun protection.

    No excuse Acura. My Mom's 1994 Oldsmobile had a sliding main visor and a secondary visor you could lower when the main visor was at the side.

    Do any of you complaining about vizors have ever thought that the combined length of the MDX's 2x doors/ window is larger than the the length of its windscreen. So tell me if you want your vizors to be so long then do you want them to be overlapping when stowed? Forget about aesthetics is that even possible considering there is a rear view mirror with a camera or laser whatever also share that space. Just think about it. I understand the telescopic nature, but not understand people complaining about their length. Think rationally before crying out.

    Old thread, but I have been running into this on my 2016 MDX. Unbelievable. To mogambo1, I don't you think you understand the concept of the telescoping arm that you find on most visors in larger vehicles. It's the exact feature created to accommodate the window being larger than the are when stowed. The fact that my 2010 and 2013 Crosstour had this feature, but my 2016 MDX that cost $15k more doesn't it pretty unbelievable.
